Dear Editor, I would like to ask your readers to urgently support the Mater Hospital in a special charity challenge that we are holding on the 31st August at Croghan Hill, Rhode, Co Offaly.

The Croghan Hill Charity Event is either a 5km or 10km assault course challenge that you can run, walk or jog and people can register online to participate at www.materfoundation.ie.

The challenge is being organised by a patient of Professor John McCaffrey of the Mater Hospital. All money raised will go towards the new Cancer Day Ward (St Vincent’s Day Care Ward) for vitally needed equipment that will enhance patient comfort and care. I am urgently asking supporters from Offaly to take part in this exciting challenge. Anyone who would like to get involved please phone the Mater Foundation on 01 830 3482 or visit www.materfoundation.ie for more information.

Chief Executive, Mater Foundation
